 I originally came across this issue while running tmux (terminal 
 multiplexer) under linuxlator. For some reason, tmux under linuxlator 
 sends data into the local socket in larger portions on Linux, control 
 message was included, and this exposed this bug. FreeBSD version of tmux 
 doesn't expose this problem.
